I'm cooking a 21.5 pound turkey. Not as big as last year's 25 pounder but I almost didn't get one at all because I wasn't in the mood for giving thanks last weekend when I went grocery shopping. I'm glad I bought one now though.

Hope everyone enjoys the day.

I guess pretty much everyone in the States is off today.

Yep, except for some retail workers. One year I forgot to pick up freezer bags for the leftover turkey so I was panicking about what to do with it. Then I thought of Walgreens and sure enough I found one that was open. And maybe not surprisingly, that place was pretty busy. I guess a lot of people either forget something for Thanksgiving dinner or have more guests than they planned on.

And in addition to Squirrel I also have something else to be thankful for. I finally have a new door going out onto the deck. Good riddance to that rotting wood door that only opened on one side and let both wind and rain into my house. I now have a brand new vinyl sliding glass door and new vertical blinds that I can open up all the way across the door. And this door is so energy efficient that I actually qualify for a tax credit by buying it. No more drafty kitchen and no more rain in the basement.

My whole house is starting to fill with the smell of turkey

When you really get down to it, we all have lots to be thankful for.


<----- Ahh yes, every season.

I'm thankful I've lost 22 pounds so far since September. So I'm going to try not to go too overboard today.

Yeah, I'm pretty proud of myself. I want to drop around another 30 by the start of spring training. Hopefully that will help with my blood pressure.

I'd like to lose a bit as well. I am 6 feet tall and right now I weigh 235. I'd like to get down into the mid 220s.

What's really surprised me is that it really hasn't been that difficult.  First I restored all the "eating rules" that I had thrown out the window the past several years.  Rules like always using a reduced calorie version of everything from hamburger and hot dog rolls to mayonnaise.  Second and most importantly I cut way back on the beer.

Like I told my doctor, no need to tell me how to do it because I already know. I just didn't care enough to bother anymore. But now I have motivation.

I find walking regularly helps as well. I'm not into jogging or doing other exercises like that, but I don't mind going for a walk or a snowshoe in the winter.

I traded in walking for my elliptical. I was going through a new pair of shoes about every 2 months walking and with the trouble I've been having with my feet I can't walk much now anyway. But I've been watching entire TV series during my daily 30 minute elliptical workouts and I find that I look forward to it. I'm currently watching all 11 seasons of Stargate SG1.

I will often walk on a treadmill in the morning and watch Netflix.
